      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Pheasant Opener

Recommended Posts

So how did the opener go for everyone? I spoke with a buddy back home and he said it was cold and miserable but managed one in the short time he and his nephew were out in the rain and 40 degree temps. There are a lot of row crops still standing so better things are ahead.

I'll be heading back next weekend for a week of chasing roosters and my GSP. Can't wait!

There were lots of standing crops but our group did manage a few birds. The population is definately down. We shot very few young roosters and the young ones that we did shoot were very small and barely able to see the red on the heads. Make sure you know what you are shooting at or don't shoot at all. It was a good day out but it sure was a good feeling to get out of the wet clothes.

I didn't make it out (watched the bison loose in the dome.. grr!)

but heard that it was tough going on Saturday with the rain and all the corn

The way it's looking I'd be suprised if the Corn was off by deer hunting.. not good!

I agree with the corn not being off the field by rifle opener. In fact, I will be very suprised if its gone in our area. Very, very wet and the corn is really behind and alot of moisture in the ear.

Where we hunt in the bottoms and with all the woods, this may not be a real big issue but for the hunters up the hill on the flat land, boy it will be a tough one for sure.

8 of us went out about 10:30 Saturday and had our 24 birds by 1p.

Sun & Sun & Tuesday were no problem for us getting our limit. The weather was rainy and about 35 degress.The birds were acting like late season birds getting up and flying away.

I just got back from a week out there and it was pretty tough to find a concentration of birds. A bird here and there, mixed in with a day of rain and 40 degrees which gave the dog and me a day to recover. A lot of sunflowers still standing in the area I was hunting in central ND, but they're starting to come off now and it should get better in the next few weeks. It is definitely different than last year as far as where the birds are. Talking with neighbors they also commented on not seeing as many this fall.

Birds or no birds, its always nice to be back in the home country again beating the back roads and watching the dog work.

    • I have to stop procrastinating, ice will be here before I know it! I made a little progress lately, I painted the inside, installed cedar accessory boards and thermostat and hopefully by this weekend have the rubber flooring down. I also ordered the termination cap for the furnace, should be seeing that in the next week or so. I also have a custom cushion being built to fit my bench seating. Got a question on rattle reels, I am looking at the all aluminum ultimate  rattle reels. Anybody use them? They seem a little spendy but not too concerned about the price, looking to see if there are any reviews out there. If those don’t seem to fit your need, what other brands have u used and feedback on them would be nice also. I will take some pics this weekend for a quick update.  
    • Sport's Show is a great place. I purchased the grey Frabil for under $200.00 But that was 5 years ago
    • You mean like Chicago is doing with Hossa?  Great idea...think of the space that would clear up!
    • Six of us shot 10 on public land Saturday near Worthington.  Good day until the wind really kicked up at the end of the day.
    • I have trail camp pics of some yearlings sparring.
    • yea but dave we will never really know now will we!!!!!!!! woulda shoulda......... its  W for da good guys and  L fer dem other ones!!!!!!!!!
    • Parise Update:    Zach Parise, battling an undisclosed injury, was in a red jersey and skating on a line with Joel Eriksson Ekand Eric Staal. The goal for the past several days was for him to make his season debut this weekend. But early in practice, Parise left the ice and did not return. "I talked briefly with Chuck, but he said it was a setback. I don't know how much of a setback or anything," Boudreau said. "I know I talked to him before practice and he felt great. That's why he was in a red color and was ready to go. The next thing I know, somebody told me he went off. I don't know why he went off. Obviously, something didn't feel right."   My feelings is that he needs to be put on the LTIL and get 100%.
